    I have been working at UHY LLP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Houston Office is a great place to work; management works hard to ensure information is relayed to all employees. They encourgage a balance of work and personal life.

    Cons

    No flex time or half days on Friday's

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and look into putting in half day Friday's or 9/80's.

    I worked at UHY LLP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A truly unique place to work that may allow you to pursue some of your career goals.

    Cons

    No vision, strategy, or leadership. No investment in people, process, or technology. Very poor benefits and old-fashioned culture. All employees exist only to enrich the partners. No organizational structure. No opportunity for advancement because the partners do not retire. The benefits are lousy and the culture is absurd. 15 days PTO and 6.5 holidays. Apparently Christmas Eve is only half a holiday. Insurance is very expensive and the 401k "match" is extremely discretionary – just like the year-end bonus that isn't tied to performance. You will never hear more intolerant, racist, and backwards thinking in a white-collar environment in 2016.

    Advice to Management

    Retire or sell, and please take your Trumpish ways elsewhere.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at UHY LLP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Staff are nice. They used to throw nice parties at Christmas. New/remodeled offices looked professional. Good parking at locations. They try to add perks like free lunches and treats during tax season

    Cons

    Long hours, expensive benefits, Old School Management, Care more about $ than the people who help them make it. Management needs to retire and let younger partners take over. Management style: Micromanager clock watchers. Don't understand about work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as an asset and not a liability. Find health insurance that the other 95% of employees can afford.

  5. "UHY Should Consider Putting Down Internal Feuds for Investment and Success a 'One Firm' Model Could Bring"

    Pros

    There are a significant number of highly talented professionals who have much potential energy and value to work nationally. Some of the newer 'leaders' have great energy and vision, but unfortunately unable to get past older partner territorialism.

    Cons

    Firm has had significant difficulties coming together as a national firm, as former legacy firms had difficulting working together. Although attmpts have been made, for those who are looking for a truly national /global 'look and feel' on the inside will find it difficult to proceed with clients who are looking for this attribute. Works like many small boutiques who happen to be together under UHY.

    Advice to Management

    It's too bad that near term cashflow desires for the local unit have taken priority over the possible multiples that could have come if everyone invested in the true belief of working together as one company. The talent is there, and the branding was starting to sink in - but a little faith and extra investment could have taken the firm places.
